RESUME
Licensed in April of 1988, I Graduated from the Realtors Institute in November of that year and received my Broker's License the following May. I was inducted into the RE/MAX Hall of Fame in 1997 and earned my Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation in 1999. As your Realtor I feel it is my job to:
1. Bring you market information,
2. Assist you in interpreting that information,
3. Discuss and understand your goals and time frame,
4. Market your property and give you feedback,
5. Assist you in negotiating
6. Follow through until closing
I assist but YOU MAKE THE DECISIONS, because, after all, it's your house.

REGIONAL FAMILIARITY
I have vacationed in the Chain O' Lakes area all my life, choosing to settle here to raise my family in 1986 because I loved the area and the lifestyle.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
I have served as Vice-president and Director of the Fox Lake Chamber of Commerce, President of the Fox Lake Elementary School Board, President of the Fox Lake Economic Development Corporation, and as a Member of both the Lake County Affordable Housing and Fair Housing Task Forces. I have been a Member of Mensa International since 1982.

REAL ESTATE
I am a Lifetime member of the Illinois Association of Realtors Diamond Club with an average of $10 Million in sales each year and a consistent member of the RE/MAX 100% Club, The RE/MAX Hall of Fame and a recipient of the RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Award. As a Member of the Realtor Association of NorthWest Chicagoland I have been appointed to and chaired numerous committees and served 9 years on the Board of Directors. I was selected as Associate Realtor of the Year in 1995 and served as the President in 2006. I have served on several State committees including 4 years on the Commercial/Industrial Committee. I was a Licensed Continuing Education Instructor for the State of Illinois and have spent many years teaching classes for the Board of Realtors.

PERSONAL
Married since 1976 to my wife Maxime with 2 children, Alexander born in 1983 and Geneva, born in 1987. I play piano and sing professionally, appearing at local clubs and charity functions and spend my leisure time boating on the Chain O' Lakes.

      Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $75K in Fox Lake, IL.
      He was very helpful and sold the home in a month with a good price. He was very quick in dealing with the house. I was a distance from the home that was sold and he handled everything very efficiently.

      Showed home in 2013 in Druce Lake, IL 60046.
      Michael is a local expert, and lifelong resident of the area. He knows the neighborhoods, schools, flood zones and a whole lot more. He also knows the processes in short sales and foreclosures as well as anyone.
